My story began when I was a kid with a burning desire to change the world. I wanted to lead innovation to transform society and uplift many people’s lives in this journey. I had a humble start in life, i.e., studying under a tree without a roof, walking many miles to save a few $ while pursuing a Masters’s degree at the University of West of England, and arriving in Canada with few dollars in the pocket and tens of thousands of in unpaid loans. Today, I have a comfortable life with a loving wife and two beautiful kids. Although this story sounds impressive, I am just an ordinary person passionate about helping people. After going through many struggles in life, I decided to pursue my childhood dream to help intense and driven people lacking opportunities through our business;- all while avoiding some of the countless mistakes I made!

I am Entrepreneur, technologist, and blogger passionate about solving business and technological challenges in Wholesale Distribution, Retail, and Manufacturing Industries. I have over 20 years of experience as an IT department Head for the Global Multi-million dollar Distribution, Retail, and Manufacturing business.   I have an extensive background in Information Technology and am an expert in solving Business problems leveraging Technology. I love to execute board room strategy and enjoy seeing real productivity improvements for the business. I am passionate about AI, Machine Learning, blockchain, and cloud technologies. Throughout my career, I led many large technological projects, e.g., ERP, POS, CRM, eCommerce platform, BI, AI, Cloud infrastructure, VoIP, legacy system modernization, Supply chain automation, and digital marketing initiatives.  

I have MS in MIS from the University of West of England, UK, an MBA in Finance from Sardar Patel University, India, and a B.Engg in Mechanical Engineering from Gujarat University, India. I owe much of my success to hard work, commitment, open-mindedness, discipline, and desire to help others. Many of those virtues I learned from my Military schooling. I am lucky to have been able to live and work in the USA, Canada, UK, Netherlands, and India. I am thankful to God that I had the pleasure meet and interacting with many intelligent people from around the world while working in Technology & Supply Chain business areas. It offered me a unique leadership perspective for solving people and cultural business challenges.

My hunger for knowledge and determination to turn information into action has contributed to my success. I believe mindfulness in the workplace is key to success – a tenet I live out through my interests in yoga, meditation, hiking, swimming, and running.
